He also said the children will be attending for free.
“This is a collaboration of fashion and music for a purposeful outcome. We also extended an invite for the children to come watch #FillUpMmabatho for free this Saturday," he wrote.
“Special gratitude goes out to the honourable mayor for making time to be with us, the volunteers who constantly give their hearts out in helping the children, and the department of social development for going the extra mile in helping us identifying these homes.”

Cassper had a life changing experience recently when he lost his good friend DJ Sumbody. He performed Monate Mpolaye at his funeral and was met with backlash.
At his service she said, "He was not scared to tell what everyone was scared to say and from there we became very close mutual friends. We went on to release the song Monate Mpolaya and I didn't like it but he would take no for an answer and when the song was released it changed everyone's career not only theirs but even mine.
It became one of my biggest songs to perform on stage and when I performed it at Global Citizen and everyone loved it he said there was not only hying that was missing,"
